Property Condition Assessment (PCA)
As part of Andersen’s suite of commercial property engineering due diligence services, we also provide Property Condition Assessments (PCAs). PCAs are often required prior to the purchase, sale or refinancing of an asset, or by property managers to ensure that buildings and related structures are maintained by the tenants in accordance with lease obligations. PCAs are primarily directed at noting construction defects or components that seem to exhibit less than expected service life or that have been poorly maintained, however they are not intended to develop detailed remedial plans for identified problems. A PCA includes a visual assessment of the conditions of the property elements such as structural and roofing systems, electrical/mechanical systems, paved areas, architectural finishes, drainage, fire protection, etc.

PCAs completed under ASTM standards provide cost estimates for rectifying deferred maintenance which is to be addressed immediately, or Short Term Repairs which refer to physical deficiencies that need to be corrected in the near future, usually within the first year or two.
Andersen certified professionals can provide clients with PCA reports that meet the ASTM standard, as needed.
